“I have been to better museums”
We love going to museums when on holiday but to be honest I have been to better museums in Australia. We did the Antartic Experience, which was an additional attraction at the time. Thia was great...
“Great to visit”
Good display. Loved the old Holden and caravan.
The fridge used by the fairies in the recent bushfires was nice to see with all the messages on it.
Gift shop on site and plenty of parking
I don’t understand the recent poor reviews as this museum is extremely impressive. I’m guessing that they were posted by people that require interactive exhibits to maintain their attention.
